Traveling to Spain during the COVID-19 pandemic is possible, but it requires travelers to meet certain requirements. Citizens from the United States can travel to Spain if they demonstrate that they are vaccinated against COVID-19, have a recovery certificate, or show a negative result on a diagnostic test (NAAT or RAT) performed within 72 hours before leaving for Spain. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has established a tool to help travelers learn about the requirements to board a flight to the United States. If the test result is positive or you have symptoms of COVID-19, it is important to isolate yourself to protect other people from infection.
If you had COVID-19 in the past 90 days and recovered, you don't need to be tested unless you have new symptoms and don't need to quarantine yourself after your arrival. Citizens who are not immigrants must show proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before flying to the United States from a foreign country. All air passengers bound for the United States must also provide contact information to airlines before boarding flights. The European Union (EU) is now recommending that travel restrictions be reduced for fully vaccinated travelers from all countries.
However, there are still several travel restrictions for travel to Spain and Europe in order to contain the spread of COVID-19 variants. Italy and Greece recently withdrew their vaccination testing rules, in addition to other measures, while destinations such as the United Kingdom and Iceland have lifted all travel restrictions due to the pandemic. Travelers should check the latest requirements for Spain, based on their recent travel history and vaccination status. Since the list of these countries changes frequently, travelers are advised to do their own research before traveling to Spain.
